If there is a package I would like to have for my Lucid server, but it is not available in the official repositories, can I upload the .tar.gz file to launchpad and install it from there so that other people can also install it?

Thank you.

You are welcome to set up your own PPA but it isn't as easy as just uploading a .tar.gz source file.
